Best Poem of F W Finney

The Ropes

Three sailors trotted
Behind your mother in a two-wheeled lifeboat
Like determined rats through the catwalks
To the cages of the newborns
Where we held you captive
On your second day of breathing
In a Fin de siècle world

The first cord is already cut
And wires hang from your navel
As a reminder of ligature to come

For a while all
Will be an extension of your mother
But soon you'll descry
The colourful lures that hang from the mobile;
Feel the strings that tow the conscience;
Hear the sound of the wind through the ratlines

Doves search for peace on a neighbour's roof.

He has orders from the landlord to tame the realm:
Lops off a limb from the olive tree.
Doves search for peace on a neighbour's roof.
He chops and rakes away the morning birdsong.
